Product Description

Estd 1805.
Good for you. Good for the sea.
Since 1946. Celebrating over 60 years of Scampi.
Fish for life?.
Sweet, succulent wholetail Scampi, from the coastal waters of Britain and Ireland, hand peeled and wrapped in light golden breadcrumbs.
Our Scampi is made from the whole tails of langoustines, wild caught by fishermen, whose families have been fishing for generations in the coastal waters of Britain & Ireland. Our Langoustine tails are then hand-peeled to create the finest quality scampi.
The dish was created by Young's in 1946 for Manetta's restaurant and remains one of the nation's favourites. It's the 60 years of experience that makes our famous Scampi so mouth-wateringly delicious.
Know your Fish.
Langoustines, also known as Dublin Bay Prawns or Norway Lobster, are a member of the lobster family. They have a smooth, velvety texture with a sweet, rich & creamy flavour.
Fish is brilliant.
We love it, and we want the nation to love it too. As the country's biggest fish expert, we bring people more ways to enjoy fish more often. By freezing our fish we lock in the taste and nutrition. It's nature's way of preserving.
Responsibly sourced fish for life
What is responsibly sourced fish for life®
We developed our award winning Fish For Life programme to ensure that all our fish is responsibly sourced. So Young's fish is not only good for you, it's good for the sea too. For more about our work to help conserve fish for future generations visit www.youngsseafood.co.uk

too few

Only 10 pieces of scampi in the bag, glad it was on special offer or I'd have felt cheated. Definitely not enough for 2. Bigger bits were soggy in the middle. If anyone has the knack of cooking frozen scampi please post!

Rating: 4 star out of 5

Not bad scampi for the price

Better still is the more expensive Waitrose scampi that comes in boxes. None of the other scampis, including the one with a touch of lemon are worth eating. IMHO.

Rating: 1 star out of 5


The bread coating was too thick for me, which I believe resulted in the blandest scampi that I've ever had.

Rating: 1 star out of 5


Young's scampi used to be the best - not any more. This was disgusting - so much batter with tiny bits of chewy tasteless scampi. Have to agree with the previous reviewer, avoid.

Horrible greasy mush with a slimy batter that overwhelms whatever bit of scampi is hiding inside.


Scampi with Tartare Sauce

Scampi with Tartare Sauce

A classic combination - perfect with chips or a mixed green salad, if you're feeling virtuous!
